Instead of using force, why don't you fix the actual test and send a patch?

Here is often how I check if a binary is available and executable (usually in my Makefile.PL files, but I digress... here's one example, and another):

use strict; use warnings; use Test::More; my $is_win = $^O =~ /MSWin/; my ($sep, $bin) = $is_win ? (';', 'perl.exe') : (':', 'perl'); my $perl_available = grep { -x "$_/$bin" } split /$sep/, $ENV{PATH}; ok $perl_available, "perl binary was found and is executable"; done_testing();

Update: Modified code to work on both Windows and Unixy platforms.
